Osprey at Lake Merritt today

Smokey Bear
 

Today at noon, an Osprey was perched in the bare tree full of fallow cormorant nests on the islands near the Nature Center. I watched it for a long time. I hope it was digesting.

Other sightings: many common goldeneyes, Bufflehead, and Scaup, Ruddy Ducks, PB and Eared Grebes. Lots of Western and Ring-billed Gulls, minor numbers of California and Glaucous-wings. No Mew Gulls.

Lots of Ruby-crowned Kingslets, Yellow-rumps, and hummers displaying too.
